CCDW class reviews:
"The time with Cole was super informative! I cannot say enough about his teaching/training technique. He was a fantastic trainer, and teaches all the fundamental concepts of shooting. He is great for a person new to shooting. I have so much more confidence after working with him...
I was very engaged and learned so much from the time spent in the classroom and range. I was very prepared for both the written and range test. I can see Cole's love for firearms and safety. I am beyond pleased with the experience and confidence I now have thanks to Cole! Well done." -Shelley 1/3/2017
"My instructor, Butch, was awesome! I learned so much and feel more confident to conceal carry properly and safely. I would highly recommend this class...especially if Butch teaches!!!...
I took the class by myself (38 year old female) with limited gun experience. Butch never once made me feel uncomfortable or "dumb". I left feeling more confident and educated on how to properly and safely conceal carry my gun!" - Holly 8/4/2020
"I took the concealed carry class today taught by Butch. I highly recommend taking your class here. We had a wide range of experience levels in the class, from experienced marksmen to women who had never shot a gun. Butch took the time everyone needed to make sure everyone had the knowledge and skills needed to get their permit. He was no nonsense, which is what is needed. It's a serious class. I apprectiate the time he took for everyone today." - Debi 9/7/2020
